Manchester United’s young winger Alejandro Garnacho, who has been out of action for two months due to an ankle injury, could make a return to the squad when they face West Ham United on Sunday, according to manager Erik ten Hag.
The 18-year-old Argentine’s comeback could give United a chance to improve their poor away record, having failed to beat a team in the top nine of the table away from home this season.
Garnacho has had an impressive debut season, scoring four goals and providing five assists in all competitions.
Ten Hag mentioned that there might be one change in the squad that played against Brighton & Hove Albion, which is likely to be Garnacho, although he will need to assess his progress before making a final decision.
United currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League, with a four-point lead over fifth-placed Liverpool and a game in hand.
The team has five league games left, starting with the West Ham fixture, before they face Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
Ten Hag is confident that United can recover from their recent 1-0 loss at Brighton and perform well in the remaining games of the season.
However, he emphasized the need for the players to show character after a poor result and take responsibility for their performance.
He also stressed the importance of qualifying for the Champions League next season, as United aim to challenge the best teams in the world.
